For the year ending September 2012, Pure Events achieved a turnover of £1.2m – static on the previous year – but boasted a profit of £350,000.

Pure Events managing director Charlotte Wilson said that the agency had a great year, but expects the company's 2013 accounts, published in late August, to be better still. "We have had a very strong year so far with repeat business from the likes of Red Bull. The CSC win is also a great boost for us."

CSC hired Pure to organise a dinner and conference event at Syon Park in West London. The event, for around 130 delegates, will occur later this month.

Events last year included a Red Bull sales conference in Leeds; the agency was also reappointed to deliver the National Eyecare Group conference for 300 delegates at the Heritage Motor Centre last November.
